1. If problems were less than a week old, I would have suggested a scanreg /restore to go back in time. It's too late now for that.
2. Maybe you are desperate enough to try Mozilla or Mozilla Firebird (www.mozilla.org) to replace IE 6.0?
Not much help, I'm afraid.
When opening IE6, I often get "work offline or click to Try again" message. I am online! Sometimes I have to refresh the page or open a new window. I have had this problem for over a week now. It's very frustrating. I have been to 2 other message boards, spoken with SBC DSL and am unable to find a solution.
As recommend on http://support.microsoft.com/newsgroups
Someone suggested I go to and try the fixes here: http://www.mvps.org/inetexplorer/answers4.htm#offline
Tried the first fix listed on the site:
Internet Explorer Starts in Offline Mode and Remains
My settings were already at "0"
2nd fix listed on the site:
HOWTO: Set Work Offline as the Default for Internet
My setting was already at "0"...changed it to "1"...
still get work offline/try again message. After I changed "0" to "1"....I restarted my computer and
checked the change I made...it defaulted back to "0".
3rd fix listed on the site:
Error Message When You Try to Use Internet Explorer: No
Connection to the Internet Is Currently Available
When I go to
And check that these two *String* keys are set to auto:
what should the (Default) string say?
when I change LoadSENS to "auto"
it defaults back to "yes"
Why is this happening and how do I fix it! UGH!
Please! Someone help me!
